There has been an enormous up-tick in hacking attempts, at least on web space that I manage as well as the servers at my day job. This means that more than ever, people need to be diligent about running all security updates on their OS as well as application updates (especially plugins like Java and Flash). It also means that for web devs like myself, it’s time to bite the bullet and buy SSL certs for any websites containing multiple logins and user data. For me, this means SSGuitar.com. As of January 20th 2017 SSGuitar is completely SSL’d. I love encryption.
